This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
While I will totally admit that I know very little about Asian culture and architecture, I just had to make these! I was shocked to find that nobody had done this already and I really needed them for a project I was planning on doing. So, I decided to make them myself!



Now, as I stated before, I know nothing of these cultures, but what I *do* know is "Avatar: The Last Airbender" which has the most BEAUTIFULLY drawn scenes of any cartoon ever. The houses in this show have roofs similar to what I am presenting to you all today, massive hint on what's to come, by the way. What started out as 3 colors quickly became a set out of fear of people not noticing the amount effort that went into making these (seriously, properly lining up the textures on each was a massive pain, but I am happy with my results) But now you will have an option for every occasion!

Included:

Yellow Trim -
  • Black
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Green
  • Brown


Red Trim -
  • Black
  • Brown


Green Trim -
  • Black
  • Green
  • Brown



Don't forget to comment / thank / download / etc.
Hope you guys enjoy - can't wait to see what you all make!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

YAY! They're up and they're beautiful, my favourite might just be the blue with gold trim! You've done the red and green trims wonderfully too, you've got the perfect colour combinations that aren't too dark or to light! Thank you

What do you mean with " 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' which has the most BEAUTIFULLY drawn scenes of any cartoon ever" and "massive hint on what's to come" ? Will you be making houses from the cartoon? That would be SO. COOL. I simply love the show (not the movie). And these roofs are great, another great construction tool that yells to me that I must build more Asian lots lol, thanks for them!

Hey these are amazing!
I was wondering if it would be possible to make a flat, glass roof? I think that it would be a great addition to the game.
Once again, these roof recolors are great and I am definitely downloading.

I love your roof recolors. I'm not sure if you take requests but I was wondering if you could make cedar roof style for me. I like a light wood style but it would be sweet if you had it 3 or 4 different colors.
